Wolves winger Adama Traore is quickly becoming a cult hero in the Premier League.
Even rival fans can’t help but have a soft spot for the electric forward, who appears to have finally broken free of his ‘diamond in the rough’ tag.
The 23-year-old is now delivering end product at the highest level, scoring against Manchester City once again on Friday evening – his third against Pep Guardiola’s side in 2019/20.
But aside from adding goals and assists to his game, Traore has also taken his forte of ‘ending careers’ to a new level this season.
- Traore’s body transformation from 2012 to now is ridiculous
- Traore has a deadly 85-rated card on FIFA 20 Ultimate Team
- Conor Coady speaks out about VAR during post-Liverpool interview
Defenders up and down the Premier League have been left trailing in his wake, with his bodybuilder physique, combined with his Usain Bolt-like speed, simply too much to handle.
To commemorate Traore’s brilliance, Score 90 have complied a YouTube video showcasing all of his mind-boggling bursts of acceleration and feats of dribbling – ones that almost look impossible to the naked eye – in 2019.
TRAORE ‘ENDING CAREERS’ IN 2019
Has there ever been a more complete athlete in the Premier League than Traore? From a purely biological viewpoint, probably not.
His speed and power make him an almost impossible puzzle to solve and the scary thing is, he’s only going to get better.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp waxed lyrical about the ‘exceptional’ Traore in the build-up to Sunday’s game against Wolves.
The German said, per Sky Sports: “A big, big talent. You would never have thought he is that young, but he is still very young, and now he has found it (the right manager). It was always clear it would happen one day, and now it has. Good for Wolves!
“He is really dangerous. In a big space Jamie Vardy is difficult to defend, but I would say Traore is even more difficult to defend because his speed is exceptional.”
Imagine if Liverpool signed Traore to bolster their squad and act as the ultimate super-sub…
